[PATCH v4 3/4] powerpc: PCI: Fix lookup of linux, pci-probe-only property

When find_and_init_phbs() looks for the probe-only property, it seems
to trust the firmware to be correctly written, and assumes that there
is a parameter to the property.

It is conceivable that the firmware could not be that perfect, and it
could expose this property naked (at least one arm64 platform seems to
exhibit this exact behaviour). The setup code the ends up making
a decision based on whatever the property pointer points to, which
is likely to be junk.

Instead, switch to the common of_pci.c implementation that doesn't
suffer from this problem and ignore the property if the firmware
couldn't make up its mind.
